Add a Little Dazzle to Roses

Hello Everyone~

Is life getting back to normal for you?  Here, I am back to work and some arctic cold has set in.  Now that Christmas is over, I guess the next thing to look forward to is summer break!
With warmer temperatures on my mind, I created a springy card with a little help from the inspiration photo Monica has for us at Add a Little Dazzle~

Beautiful, isn't it?

And here is my card~

I focused on the wood grain background and those gorgeous metallic leaves.  I stamped a woodgrain image in Early Espresso on kraft cs.  A piece of vellum down the middle softens things.
Next, I chose some flower images and stamped them in shades of pink and die cut them out.  My 'greenery' is actually bronze- Brushed Bronze Add a Little Craft Metal.  I love using the metal for leaves as you can really mold them to create your floral spray.   I added a few stamped leaves as well for contrast.
My sentiment is stamped on a Vintage A2 Mat Die from Top Dog Dies. 
And that scrumptious ribbon.  I was thrilled to be the winner of this and more gorgeous ribbon from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store during the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  A few pearls finish the card.

My sketch inspiration is from Fusion

I am also linking up to Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, Something Old (stamps) and Something New (ribbon).
